The Story Tree began with a custom made, illustrated Family Tree, of my own copyrighted design. It was originally created in 2005 as a gift for my mother-in-law and over the years, has evolved into the work displayed here. The commissioned trees that you see here are created individually for each family, so no two are exactly alike. Each tree takes between 10-30 hours of drawing to complete.
Since that time, I've added the Pen & Ink Family Tree, Wedding Guest Book Trees and finally Pet Portraits....
I love animals and always have. Our family is a rescuing, adopt-don't-shop kind of family. We are involved in our local rescues and are currently housing our 10th foster dog. I love to be able to portray a person's beloved pet on paper. If you are part of a 501(c)3 rescue, feel free to contact me regarding fundraising options.
Private Commissions also make up a big portion of my work. If you have an idea you would like to discuss for commission, please message me. Most pieces are created with graphite pencils on either Strathmore Bristol 500 or Arches Watercolor paper and can often incorporate colored pencil or watercolor.
Prints of some of my pencil pieces can be purchased directly from: http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/tammy-liu-haller.html<
The Story Tree also sells the original artwork of Artist Matt Wolfe, a painter from NY who now resides in Georgia. He has developed his own expressionist style that specializes in the University of Georgia Football program. His fans love his use of color and sweet portrayal of UGA, the beloved mascot of the Dawgs.
